Evesham Editorial 22nd Sep, 2023   0

THREE men are wanted by police after they robbed a jewellery store in Broadway armed with a sledgehammer, an axe and a crowbar.

The offenders, wearing black balaclavas, forced entry to the store in The Green around 2.30pm on Wednesday, September 20 and attacked a member of staff before stealing valuable jewellery.

The member of staff suffered minor injuries during the attack and was left very shaken.

A blue Range Rover was seen leaving the scene and later found burnt out on Sainbury Hill in Broadway. It is believed they drove off in a black Mercedes afterwards, with the registration NC10 RWV.

Detective chief inspector, Chris Percival, said: ‘’We are keen to speak to anyone who was in the area at the time and may have witnessed or has dash cam footage of a blue range rover or black Mercedes being driven around Broadway or who saw the range rover being set on fire on Saintbury Hill.’’

Anyone with information is asked to contact reactive CID by email on [email protected] or by calling 101 extension 7742235.

Alternatively, contact Crimestoppers anonymously 0800 555 111.
